To discover the storied Polynesia of Melville, Gauguin and Michener, you have to travel to Tahiti's outer islands. Moorea, the former haunt of Tahitian royalty, is one such island where you still see fishermen paddling outrigger canoes, pareo-clad women strolling along the roads and children fishing from island bridges. Moorea is an island of vertiginous mountains - most of its 18,000 people live along the narrow coastal shelf. Behind tin-roofed wooden houses lie lush green mountains rushing up to fill the sky.French Polynesia comprises some 130 islands, of which Tahiti is the best known. Just 12 miles across the lagoon from Tahiti lies Moorea.Note: Moorea is a tender port. Transportation from ship to shore will be via the ship's tender service.

Discover Moorea on a journey around the island along the coastline to Belvedere Lookout. Travel past lush pineapple fields and coffee plantations to the ruins of a Polynesian temple or "marae."
This vantage point at the summit of Mt. Rotui is a must-see offering panoramic views of the lush green valley, as well as the two bodies of water: Opunohu Bay and Cook's Bay, flanking the mountain.
Visit a cultural center where you can buy authentic woodcarvings, vahine weavings, leis, quilts, dyed cloth and more from artisans, then watch a traditional dance performance and tour a pearl farm.
This local factory produces an assortment of incredibly fresh juices harvested from local fruits: papaya, pineapple, star fruit, ginger, coconut and grapefruit, as well as fruit brandies and liqueurs.
Moorea's two gentle lagoons make a wide array of activities possible, some of which include boating, jet and water skiing, paragliding and picnicking on the motu, scuba diving or even shark feeding.
The shimmering lagoon welcomes visitors to the most stunning island in the South Pacific. Teaming with tropical fish and colorful coral, explore its beauty on a glass-bottom boat or catamaran cruise.
Take an off-road expedition through the forest, past bamboo groves and fruit plantations, or go on foot to Belvedere Lookout and up Magic Mountain for stunning views of the North Shore.
Moorea is home to the amazingly intelligent spinner and rough-tooth dolphins. Visit the Dolphin Center for an interactive program or join a marine biologist on the water for a dolphin-viewing outing.
